I had high hopes for this camera, but the reality is it is the bottom of the Stylus Tough series. The shutter speed is so slow that by the time the picture is taken the kids have closed their eyes or walked away. The flash is so ridiculous that everything has a white haze around it (that is if it isn't completely washed out). Outdoor pictures are ok, nothing special, the shutter still lags though. I will be calling Olympus with the hopes that my camera was defective and I didn't in fact purchase a low quality product (the only reason I didn't exchange it is because I foolishly didn't test it out until my return period was up, my fault).

On the plus side, I LOVE the one touch HD video recording, and of course, waterproof and shockproof make it great for adventures. The built in storage is great too, just in case you run out of space on your card.

Hopefully, if my unit isn't defective, as the summer goes on, this camera will grow on me! I've got lots of "watery" vacations in store! This camera has lots of potential, no doubt about that, I will continue taking pictures and hopefully post some for others to see.

Accessory Recommendations:
If you buy this product you will most definitely need an adjustable or floating wrist strap (the one it comes with does not tighten around your wrist, and the camera does not float, obviously). You will also want to buy extra batteries (not too expensive on here) as the battery life is pretty weak. For a pretty low price you can get a good warranty with accidental damage because lets face it, if you buy a shockproof/waterproof/freezeproof camera you're likely an adventurous person, and some adventures could leave you with a busted camera!

Positives:
1) submersible in water to 3m (10 feet),
2) shockproof
3) will work at extreme temperatures (rated to -10C, around 14F)

Negatives:
1)Extremely slow, takes about 6 seconds from the time that you turn on the camera to when its ready to take the first picture. The picture to picture time is also a fairly slow 2 seconds.
2) Poor quality of indoor pictures, some blurring as it does not focus well in poor light. Also some noise on the indoor pictures without flash.
3) LCD is not very bright which can be a problem when trying to compose pictures outdoors

Summary:
Very easy to use, the current settings appear on the side of the LCD and they are easy to change. A fairly robust feature set as well as its ruggedness are the main positives. The poor LCD and very slow response times make it hard to recommend as there are better cameras on the market (see Canon A3100 IS for example). If you need a tough, rugged, camera you'll probably do better with the Panasonic Lumix DMC FT1. Bottom line, I bought this camera and within a week was returning it to buy the Canon A3100 IS, and I'm very happy with that choice.

Verified Purchase
Bought this camera for my 12 year old granddaughter for her birthday. I thought good choice because of water resistance and drop resistance.

Before her vacation, she charged and started practicing with it. She could only take ab out 20 pics. before no battery life left. Tried a few times after charging and the same thing.

REturned that camera and ordered a replacement to be shipped to her vacation spot. The same think happened with that camera - NO BATTERY LIFE AT ALL!!!

Finally returned the second one for full credit - now need to find a replacement that can hold a normal charge of at least a days worth of pics.

Anyone else with this problem???

Verified Purchase
I usually use the disposable water cameras and have been very disappointed in the horrible and dark photos that I would receive....lots of memories were lost. This time I made the purchase and I'm glad I did! I used it in the pool and on the water slides on our trip to the Bahamas. I even used the video feature a few times as we were on the lazy river and on the waterslides! Turned out great! Good flash, clear pictures....except for that one time a water droplet was stuck on the lens...just wip frequently and it will be fIne. I felt comfortable with the price I paid and the quality of the photos and camera. Don't forget the water strap!

After having experience with not only the Olympus Tough 6020, 8000 and the 8010 I thought I had a pretty good grip on what to expect from the newer, and less expensive Tough 3000. I spent a weekend with it, mostly outdoors, and shot many stills and a few videos as well. It's getting returned to the store today and I hope to find another 80xx to take it's place.

While the feature list of the 3000 reads quite similarly to the more expensive models in this family line this is a camera that really does exemplify the old adage "you get what you pay for", in this case, not a lot. I won't go into great detail about what this camera *should* do; if you are reading this you probably already know that the "Tough" line are designed to withstand pretty good shocks, such as an accidental drop onto pavement, and not only be water resistant but truly water PROOF. I favor the "Tough" family of cameras over it's obvious competitors as the Olympus Tough line is also one of the only point and shoot cameras in this class that have mechanical image stabilization, a feature not to be underestimated when shooting action on the go.

While no camera of mine is ever likely to be tossed at a rock or anything the 3000 has a cheap, plastic feel to it that makes it easy to imagine shattering into a million pieces if it was even to fall out of a pocket onto concrete or something. The more expensive models, in contrast, feature a much more solid construction with real metal in it, the 8xxx series even having metal reinforcement in key points (the corners) most likely to take a hit.
